|Mime ~ The Art of Physical Eloquence -
This three hour workshop is crafted not just for the performer who desires to deepen their
physical work, but just as importantly, for any professional who uses the stage as a platform for
The first thing the observer (audience) comes in contact with is the physical eloquence of the
presenter. This instrument known as the human body is the foundation of everything you do.
Knowing how to use, manipulate and express the body is the essence of what the art of mime is
During this three hours we will explore an array of techniques that will aid you in this creative
journey. We will start with a focused warm up that will blend into technique for several illusions,
character work (both human and non-human) and some of the elements.
My objective is for you to have a few applicable concepts and techniques that you can apply to
anything you (even you if you speak) do on stage. Your physical presence on stage will enhance
what you want to communicate and your presentation will never be the same. Come dressed
for freedom of movement and lets have a great and creative time.

Antonio Rocha, born and raised in Brazil, came to the USA in 1988 to study with mime master
Tony Montanaro at the Celebration Barn Theatre. This became a 15 year professional
relationship that shaped everything Mr. Rocha does on stage. Mr. Rocha was also invited to
attend a two week intensive invitational only workshop with Marcel Marceau in Gambier Ohio.
These two main opportunities plus several workshops from various theatre professionals and a
Summa Cum Laude Bachelor in Theatre arts from the University of Southern Maine, gave Mr.
Rocha the foundation needed to create his unique blend of mime and storytelling.
Antonio Rocha has toured his unique work across 6 continents at venues including the Kennedy
Center, The Smithsonian Institution, Wolf Trap, The National Storytelling Festival and various
other venues and Festivals across the USA, Canada, Europe and beyond.
Mr. Rocha has presented a TEDx talk called Transitions in Eloquence and his physical work has
even gained the attention and compliments of Cirque du Soleil directors.
